PSWR YOUNG ADULT MINISTRY – HOLY LAND TRIP – Postponed
Due to unforeseen circumstances, our regional young adult trip to Israel Palestine is postponed until Spring 2018. Although it disappointing for those of us who we ready to travel in a few months, we are grateful for the opportunity to plan well and invite more folks to the travel team. We also look forward to the opportunity to partner with additional ministries, organizations, and individuals to ensure all those who feel called can travel with small financial burden. Please keep this upcoming trip in your prayers.
Those who have already applied have been given priority for the 2018 trip. Additional application information for those interested in traveling next year will be released later this year.
PSWR YA CONGRATULATES NA’KEYA HASLETT
The PSWR Young Adult Ministry is proud to announce that Na'Keya Haslett (E. 105th Street Christian Church) was selected among hundreds of candidates to participate in this year's Forum for Theological Exploration (FTE) Christian Leadership Forum. For four days she will engage with leaders from diverse communities and organizations from across the US and Canada. Not only will young adult leaders be participating in this gathering, but doctoral students, scholars and church leaders will join together to discuss vocational questions about ministry, exchange ideas and connect with a community of peers.
Please join the PSWR Young Adult Ministries in celebrating this awesome honor and amazing young leader, Na'Keya Haslett. May God bless her in this adventure.

The PSWR Young Adult Camp was a HUGE success!
On October 21-23, 2016, twenty young adults between the ages of 18 and 35 met at Loch Leven for a weekend of worship, meaningful conversation, and service. Minister Na'Keya Haslett provided inspiring messages throughout the weekend that caused us to think about faith as a journey in our lives. Emily Malotte and David Ruby did a marvelous job as music leaders. Our directors, Beth Parker and Alicia Martin, did a fantastic job planning the weekend. It was great to have some enriching discussions, some much need rest time, and the opportunity to bond with new friends!
Our discussions about how young people can make a difference in the church produced creative ideas to provide ministry throughout the region for young adults. We were inspired to try some new things to engage our passions and love for others.
We are tremendously thankful for the generosity of an anonymous Disciple in the PSWR who gave to make sure all young adults could attend the event for free! This allowed some folks to come who otherwise might not have been able to afford a weekend like this one. Thank you!
Look for more information about how you can get involved in ministries for young adults in the PSWR… because, whether you knew it or not, it’s a thing!
